What is Fascia Board and why does it matter?

by Duckworth Gutters on 03/03/18


We know when we need new or replaced gutters. When it rains, it pours and your yard and foundation pay the price – not much hiding from you there. What you may not be aware of is the extent of damage to your fascia and soffit boards.

 What is it, why should I care?

 Fascia is part of your roofing system that is used to create a barrier between the outside and the edge of the roof. Fascia can typically be seen from the street level. The finished surface below the fascia and rafters is referred to as the soffit or eave.

 Fascia and soffit are typically made out of wood materials. This means they can rot. Now, what does that have to do with Gutters, you may as? Typically, gutters are mounted to your Fascia board. So, while you know you need new gutters, the surprise may come when they come off your home and beneath it is rotten fascia and/or soffit.

What does this mean?

When your fascia and/or soffit are rotten, they no longer provide a stable base for gutters. They also pose a risk for mold and mildew that can spread down the side of your home, and pose a risk for potential roof leaks.

How can we help?

When Duckworth Gutters comes out for a gutter installation job, they come fully prepared to replace fascia and soffit where needed, thus ensuring a secure, job-well-done.

How does it all work together?
